I will have to do it again the next time it happens. I can't recall at this moment if it said Chrome or not. Sorry.

Did you hear that the title was Chrome or something else? If not Chrome, then the focus went somewhere outside of the Chrome universe.

It just happened again. I used JAWS-T and heard the "title is…. I tried to navigate using H for headings and just heard "h" I tried ALT-tab to switch programs. Again I could not navigate by headings, which I am confident are present. I refreshed the page with no change. After I unloaded and re-loaded JAWS it behaved normally. I am using the most recent Chrome browser and JAWS 21 on a Win10 laptop.

I wonder if it is JAWS not detecting that Chrome is in focus?
When it next happens, please someone do a JAWS Key and T and tell us what it reports. I’ll do the same if it happens to me.
All the best

It just happened, and I tried James' suggestion of pressing Alt + Tab to leave chrome and then Alt + Tab to go back to chrome. It worked. Thanks James. Does anyone know why it works?
